Easy Chicken Salad

I have had a long day, and I needed to go to the store for dinner.
My local supermarket had take out Whole Rotisserie Chicken on sale for $3.99.  My family doesn't really like chicken on the bone.  So I thought.  I could make Chicken Salad.  Find your favorite chicken salad recipe.  I love apples in my chicken salad on toasted wheat bread ,and so do my children.  I diced honey crisp apples, but braeburn apples are great as well.  I also add celery, cilantro, scallions, mayo, hard boiled egg, a touch of ranch dressing and just a touch of mayo.  I served the sandwiches with a side of grapes.... also on sale.  Healthiest meal all week, and very tasty.

Just a note, your whole foods and central market stores have free range chickens, and organic chicken.

I really bumbed it was all eaten before I could take a photo.

Take your Rotisserie Chicken and pull off your white meat chicken, I found that it came off quite easily.  No need for a knife.  Dinner took about 25 minutes most of the time taken to cut up the items for the salad.  I have purchase pre-made Chicken Salad at the store but it doesn't really taste really good.  This chicken salad was great and all gone.  No left overs.  I was also happy that the salad was made with fresh ingredients.  Did I mention that is was super easy.  I just had to take a moment to share.

So, I'll take the chicken off the bone and I'm good from their. I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner :)I had to go to the store for dinner today too.. Hot dogs and beans! It was a hit.
